Concept Art for the STAR TREK Section of Paramount’s New Theme Park

If visiting Spain wasn’t already on your to-do list, there’s a wonderful reason to add it: Paramount is planning to build a theme park at Alhama de Murcia before the end of 2015. According to StarTrek.com, the project encompasses not only an amusement park with different sections but also condos, a casino, hotels, and more. Hey, if Disney can pull it off, so can any company with deep enough wallets. So far, the most appealing part of the theme park is that it will include plenty of Star Trek touches.

A square, titled Plaza Futura, will be made for Trek fans and will feature: “a Starfleet Spain recruiting center, a 3D simulator ride (which allows guests/recruits to experience adventures in outer space), and a Warp Speed Coaster that will reach exciting heights and speeds and include an underground portion (a wormhole, naturally) and several loops.”

Concept art showcases sleek and futuristic designs that tie in with what we’ve seen of future Earth in the various series and films. One hopes Paramount will look at the examples of detailed theming at places like Wizarding World at Universal Studios and Cars Land at Disney’s California Adventure and go crazy with making the Star Trek section feel like you’ve walked onto a set.

The possibilities are exciting. We only saw a taste of what could be created with the now closed Star Trek Experience in Las Vegas. I’d love to see a Star Tours type attraction that incorporates every iteration of the series and takes viewers on a journey across the galaxy. Having a transporter pad for photo ops is a must, and I’d like to see replicas of sets with rotating prop and costume displays. Really though, I’d have everything I need if they just built another Quark’s Bar.

What attractions would you want to see in a Star Trek park? Let us know in the comments.

    They could make a great motion ride piloted by droids and they can call it Star Tours! Oh, wait, nevermind!

    I would want to see the Bridges and Engine rooms of all the different Enterprises and Voyager and Defiant complete with Ready Rooms and Observation Lounge etc. The Promenade from DS9 and not just a few stores and Quarks Bar. I want the whole damn circle even the Klingon Restaurant. DS9 Operations Center. Finally I want to be able to relax with a drink in 10 Forward.

    I remember when Paramount owned Great America in Santa Clara and they had a ton of Star Trek stuff on display, even had bridges from the ships for a bit. It was pretty awesome. I missed the Star Trek experience in Las Vegas so I hope this happens.

    Universals old Star Trek experience was great would love to see something like that.

  8. Dale Hoppert says:

    A lot of that interior art is just a redress of the old STTE Vegas sets. The artist just made them bigger, rounder and whiter, JJ Apple Store-style. Anyone who visited Star Trek The Experience in Las Vegas will recognize them.

  9. Shayde says:

    Yeah, I so miss the Vegas experience. Damn shame they can’t make another in SOME theme park… I’m looking at YOU Universal Studios!!

    As many interactive displays and motion rides as possible. Also, keep it with the original canon, not movie canon.
